The most amazing staff in Cape Town work at this Restruant. I love the atmosphere, I love the coffee. It would be incredibly hard to fault this establishment. (If anything it would be nice if they had more toilet facilities but that is a small issue).

We went there during our vacation for breakfast and loved it a lot! Good service, good food and tasty coffee.

I will definitely go there again before head back to home.

My husband, his grandparents and I came in from Australia to visit Cape Town and was recommended to visit Truth's coffee for a delicious experience. When we got there, we had told our waiter that it was our first time at the cafe and so he offered us our coffees on the house. When it came to ordering our meals, I specifically specified that they do not put any seed spread on my food as I am allergic to it and behold when my food came, there was the spread all over my Avo toast. When I told them that I specifically requested it not be there, they sent it back only for it to come back a minute later, meaning they just scraped it off and gave me back the same one instead of remaking me the Avo toast, knowing 100% there would be no trace of the spread. I had my husband eat all garnish on the top so I would not be in contact with any paste left. When we got the bill, we saw that the coffee was on the bill and when we asked the waiter why it was there when he said that it wouldn't be, he was like I never told you it would be free.
Besides lying to us, the coffee was so terrible that even adding more milk and sugar couldn't make the coffee drinkable, mind you, the coffee was 34 rand.
IN COMPLETE SHOCK WITH THE SERVICE AND ATTITUDE OF THE RESTAURANT/CAFE!
I would not put Truth's on my recommendation lists but rather put Jarrod's located in Sea Point!
